Community super heroes are being called upon to help raise money needed to care for terminally ill people.

The Waipuna Hospice walk/run aims to honour, remember, and celebrate the heroes in our lives – both past and present.

The event encourages people to embrace their “super hero” by celebrating and acknowledging the heroes in their lives, and walking or running in celebration and remembrance of them.

Those participating will take on either a 3.6km walk or a 6.4km run, spot prizes, costumes, and more, Saturday, March 27, will be an eventful day and a meaningful and fun way to celebrate life.

“Why not assemble your avengers and get the whole household caped up?” says a Waipuna Hospice spokesperson.

“Invite friends, family, colleagues, or team and club members to join you in registering.”

The walk started in 2019 and crowds had a blast dressing up and joining fellow superheroes for a walk around Mount Manganui.

With 2020’s walk cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, the hospice is gearing up to make 2021 bigger and better. But they can’t do it without your support.

“Register for the walk/run and have a blast while you raise critically needed funds to help the terminally ill in your community.”

Register before February 15 and receive a free Super Hero gift pack. Please note, packs are subject to availability.

Tickets are $10 for an individual (over 18 years), $5 for Waipuna Hospice volunteers and members, or come as a group of five individuals for the discounted price of $40.
